House in the Lakes


Being located in the heart of the The Lake District National Park and with a Bat survey required, Planning Permission could have been a little daunting for this project but all went through without a hitch.  Building Regulations Permission has now also been granted and we will shortly go out to tender with construction set to commence next year.

The proposals include modern extensions to the front of the property, to accommodate a new entrance, and to the rear, where an open plan kitchen / living space will lead on to a terrace which maximises the incredible view to the West.  The tight, steeply sloping site provided a challenge to improve the access and accommodate additional parking at street level.  Other alterations have included forming an additional bedroom, storage and bathrooms (one of which will have a frameless glass roof perfect for star gazing).
